Photos from the INFORMS Tune-Up Today at the Isenberg School - See you in San Francisco

Today is Halloween but it was also the Tune-Up for the Annual INFORMS Conference,  which we started a few years ago so that our doctoral students could get to practice the talks that they would be giving at our annual conference. The event was organized by the UMass Amherst INFORMS Student Chapter.

Today, we had 6 PhD student presentations and they were fabulous! What stands out is the breadth and depth of applications and methodologies that are being utilized at UMass Anherst by our PhD students in Operations Research and the Management Sciences !

I took the photos below. Great to see faculty turn out as well to support our students. Nice to have some Halloween decorations as well to create a festive mood!
We look forward to seeing all of our colleagues in San Francisco soon for #INFORMS2014.
